Learning with Education.com

Just to clarify this post isn’t sponsored but it is something that I am genuinely interested in!

A few months ago I was reached out by a website called Education.com. I know recently there has been an incline of people deciding to home school their children, there are approximately 50,000 children that are home schooled in the UK alone.

It got me wondering how do parents actually home school their children? How do they follow the curriculum or make lesson plans. I was genuinely interested in how it works and even though Thea is too young to understand anything yet I wanted to have a look further into it. I don’t think we would home school Thea but I like that there are educational website like this.

I was really surprised how many lessons are on the website and how easy it is to access the lesson library. I also thought it was a good idea if you wanted to add some extra school work in at home if your child is in regular school. I also think its great on rainy days for some fun learning activities to do with younger children. There are online learning games and printable worksheets too!

There are lots of fun puzzles like the one below, Your child will love naming creepy crawlies and practicing spelling in this crossword puzzle! For more fun and educational activities, visit Education.com.

Birthday Outings

Today I turned 29!

I have had lots of lovely birthday wishes, and had a brilliant day/night with my Family.

To start off with Thea went to nursery today so I had a day to myself, Danny had to work so Alan decided to take me to a lovely place called The Loquacious Baker Coffee Shop & Bakery (by taking I mean me driving and him paying hehehe).

He had met the owner briefly while at work and thought that it would be a lovely birthday treat for me (FYI it was!)

This little Café is located in the Quaint village of Burbage. The outside is very modern/chic and I could tell that a lot of pride goes into this little café.

I loved that it is quite small, I personally love this as I like that its more personal.

We sat in the corner under a big flower wall, I ordered a Sweet potato with chickpea tagine topping (flipping lovely) and Alan ordered a chicken, pesto and cashew nut ciabatta. The food was amazing! I’m not too fussy when it comes to food but this was next level. It was so good.

I also had a mocha latte and tried Chai latte for the first time (big hit) and I manged to leave room for cake. Because if you go somewhere that has bakery in its name, it would be rude not to eat cake right? Right.

 

This was meant to be a really lovely photo of a piece of cake… but I ate it ooops!

I would really recommend this place to anyone that loves homemade cakes and a bit of a fancy lunch, we will certainly be going back!

After picking Thea up from nursery we went to Pesto at the White Horse in Desford. I have been here before with Danny, but for my birthday my parents and brother joined us. I honestly don’t know how I ate because I was still full from earlier.

They do Italian Tapas and it is delicious, I treated myself to 2 mocktails too. The food was amazing and everyone really enjoyed it.

So in all it was a fun and food filled day! Thanks for the birthday wishes, Heres to being 29!

Much Love

Review of Max Ezra LDN Men’s Changing Bag

If you read my last blog I mentioned that I had bought Danny a Changing bag for Christmas. I don’t think he appreciates my sparkly changing bag as much as I do!

I found Max Ezra LDN through my Instagram account and instantly knew that Danny would really love the bag. He’s not really into fashion but he does like nice things.

I had a little chat with them through Instagram messenger and they are so friendly and lovely.

Danny carries a back pack around with him most of the time that usually has his work laptop in as well as other work bits. This changing bag has enough room to fit all of his work things in as well as his laptop and all of Thea’s things.

 

I ordered it in the Christmas sale so I got 30% off, it got delivered really quickly and was packaged really well. The quality is so good, I’m always a bit wary of ordering through the internet as you can get some right dodgy stuff but this is nothing like that. I was very pleasantly surprised.

We went out at the weekend for a long walk and the bag was packed with everything we needed (and more). It comes with a quilted changing mat and is really stylish.

It has loads of storage which is really convenient. I would really recommend it to anyone who is looking for something a bit different for their guy.

They have a 30% sale on until tomorrow! use discount code JAN19 at checkout.

Much Love

Birthday Gal

It was my lovely Grandma’s birthday yesterday so me and Hayleigh took her out for afternoon tea. We went to an amazing place called Ellen Louisa’s Vintage Teas in Burbage. I had never been here before but I was very pleasantly surprised. It was such a little step back in time and everything was just so lovely and quaint. There were tables with proper vintage tea sets with matching napkins.  All the sandwiches are made to order which suited my gran as she’s doesn’t like a lot so it was nice that she got to choose.

The food was brilliant and we really enjoyed the proper traditional loose leaf tea. The owner Lynn was so nice and helpful. When we got their the highchair was all set up for Thea (love the small things) we chatted to Lynn about an old photo that was on the wall and she told us that it was of her grandma who she named the tea room after. She told us heartfelt story of why she opened the tea room, it was in honour of her grandma Ellen Louisa. She was a chronic diabetic and had to have her leg amputated later on in life. I couldn’t help but to think of my grandad who had the same thing happen to him.

This was the first birthday my grandma has had without my grandad so it was nice to keep her occupied but still talk about him without her getting upset. Thea was brilliant, we stayed for around an hour and a half and she was quite happy chomping on cheese puffs and pieces of sandwich. The whole experience was so lovely and relaxing with nostalgic music playing in the background.

When we left we headed home but took an impromptu detour to a garden centre to have a look around the Christmas deals (£60 later cough cough). My gran really enjoyed her birthday and so did me and Hayleigh
